Pinquo - Colin Thiele

Pinquo is about an injured penguin who is found by two children and is taken under their wing. He grows up and has his own family and lives for a couple of years near the bay where the children found him. 

 

Others wrote that this was moving, gorgeous and compelling.

 

But i personally think that the storyline wasn't that intriguing, it could've had more suspense. It is a bit sad in the end, but i didn't really feel sad. The author could've made the plot more in-depth. I think this is better for younger kids, and that's probably why i didn't like it.

 

i recommend this as a read-aloud for younger kids(If they don't mind the very sad bit at the end), and the older kids might want something longer and with a deeper plot. I give it 1.5 stars.
